The Versatility of Showit as an Entrepreneur’s Website Template
I’ve got to level with all of the creatives, entrepreneurs, photographers, and coaches out there for a second. If you don’t have full control over the functionality and appearance of your site, as well as the ability to update it however you want, whenever you want, you could be missing out on some serious leads (and revenue). Showit templates are among some of the best website templates to use as a creative entrepreneur. Here’s why I love them (and why you should too)!
1) Showit is fully customizable.
Other popular website templates out there (cough cough, Squarespace) don’t allow much wiggle room for changes to the page structure and layout. Once you select a template, you’re largely stuck with that type of page layout. If you want to have page indexes or a drop-down menu and your template doesn’t support it, you’re out of luck. Want to have wider margins on certain pages? Nope. Want to use more than 3 fonts? Too bad!
Showit gives you the ability to design your website any way you want – use ANY colors, fonts, video integrations, or page structures. Want a pop-up only on certain pages or to layer some background images? Ok! Need a sales page that uses different fonts and colors than your main pages? Sure! Since Showit templates come with software that is drag and drop – navigation is fully customizable and it’s quick and easy. Literally, drag and drop, wherever, whenever. As someone who has been in your shoes, the Showit website designer is an entrepreneur’s best friend.
2) Showit templates allow you to customize your mobile site separately!
Have you ever tried to add a vertical line to a Squarespace site? Not only do you have to create it in Photoshop and then import it to your media library (adding a line takes two clicks with Showit’s website designer), but it doesn’t work AT ALL on mobile. When you look at the mobile version of the site, BAM. You’re smacked in the face with a vertical line image. It looks clunky and unintentional and it just plain doesn’t work. And don’t forget, your SEO ranking is affected by how functional and easy to navigate your mobile site is, so don’t underestimate the power of a well-designed mobile site.
Using Showit templates, you can design your mobile site and desktop separately. You have complete control over the size, spacing, arrangement, and visibility of all elements on your mobile site. It’s just as customizable as the desktop version. Drag, drop, done. This system is the best entrepreneur website template that we’ve found because you get to be in control!
The Showit Community and Support
Our Personal Showit Platform Experiences
I stumbled across the Showit platform in 2010 as I was browsing Jasmine Star’s wedding photography blog. I’d have to say about 90% of what I learned about wedding photography and business came from Showit and Jasmine Star, and that’s a convo for a different day, but here’s what I’ve learned over the years of using Showit templates for entrepreneurs: their community and support is unmatched.
Exception Customer Services and Support
From day one, ten years ago, the Showit support team (back then it was only one person and now they have a huge team and are still growing!) has always had my back. They’re always available for questions, one-on-one video chats, phone calls, and any assistance that I need, day or night. If your website mysteriously crashes overnight, don’t worry, they have an emergency support staff member available 24/7 (and I’ve never heard of any other platform doing this).
Showit as a Business Resources
Honestly, most of what I learned about business has been from Showit and their resources. In the early days, they would broadcast from their offices for an hour every day and would feature photographers and their websites, interview Showiteers, discuss related books and blogs, and explain how to use Showit templates, all while keeping things lighthearted, funny, and maintaining a sense of community. It’s reasons like this that communicate that Showit is not just a company, they’re a family. See more about this in my previous post, Why We Love The Showit 5 Web Platform.
